A Glimpse into Ancient Indian Astronomy | Khurshed Batliwala (Bawa)


While astronomy is the science of exploring the world that is outside, meditation is the science of exploring what is inside. In this talk by Khurshed Batliwala, he explores how Ancient Indian Scientists and Astronomers knew about the wonders of the outside world which modern day science is still catching up.

With a post graduate in Mathematics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, Khurshed Batliwala, or Bawa as he is fondly known (a nick name that has stuck from his IIT days) is an extraordinary personality.

In his own words, he decided it was better to teach people meditation and make them happy rather than teach them mathematics and make them miserable and thus chose the unconventional and challenging career path as a faculty member of the Art of Living, sharing the vision of its founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, which is to see a smile on every face on the planet.

Khurshed Batliwala and Dinesh Ghodke, Faculties of Art of Living and Authors of the best selling books Ready, Study, Go! and Happiness Express, make talks on how to deal with the most common problems that most of us face, which can be effortlessly integrated into daily life.
